What do you do? How do you use SoundCloud in your life?
I am a college student and I work at a salad restaurant. I consider myself a musician, but I also pursue many other creative endeavors including poetry, scriptwriting, and graphic design. I use SoundCloud to share my music and see how other people can inspire my creativity.
What is the collaboration idea that you would like to accomplish with the SoundCloud community?
My first collaboration idea is a “SoundFest” where musicians, poets, podcasters, and any other soundsmiths can come to present their work with each other and share their techniques. It’s always amazing to see the different insights that people can give you on your pieces and there are few things more fun than getting together with a group of like-minded people and having a good time. It’s a somewhat obtuse idea that can be fitted to the community’s needs.
What is your favorite place in the city and why?
I love the peak of Horsetooth just West of the city because there is no better way to see the city than from above. If you haven’t been up there yet, I highly recommend making a trip there! In the city itself I like the Alley Cat because I can always meet new people there with different interests and creative strengths.
What is your favorite sound and why?
I love the sound of snow falling; the way everything is muted and you can be anywhere but you only hear what is near you is entrancing to me. Here is mrz’s melting snow: http://soundcloud.com/mrz/melting-snow-silence
Where else can we find you on the web?
